Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses and information following a collision which happened on the B6265 Grassington Road at around 7am on Wednesday 24 May between a runner and a man driving a white Ford Transit van with chevron markings on the back.

The runner, a man in his fifties, was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He currently remains in hospital in a serious, but stable condition.

The driver of the Ford Transit, a man in his thirties from Lancashire, has been assisting police with their enquiries and has been interviewed as a voluntary attendee. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.

They’d particularly like to speak to anyone who may have seen or captured dashcam footage of either the driver or the runner prior to the collision, or the collision itself.
